1986 Toyota 4Runner Overview

Was 1986 the year that SUV's started to go from being off-roading monsters to grocery getters? Perhaps not, but the 1986 Toyota 4Runner was perhaps a little too easy to drive.

A complete redesign of the 4Runner changed the suspension from a solid front axle to an independent front suspension (IFS). Complaints about highway driving were in part responsible for this change. With the new suspension, driving was smoother, but off-roading capabilities were reduced. Rear seats were not the standard in 1986, and many were put in aftermarket, so this was not quite a supermaket SUV yet =D.

A new engine was also available in 1986: the 22R-TE I4, a turbo-charged version of the prior 2.4-liter I4.
